Many fans tend to agree that their favorite part of every Terminator film is their glimpses into what the future looks like, post Judgment Day, post the moment Skynet became self aware and launches a nuclear attack against humanity. Well, we were fortunate to be able to talk to one of the human survivors, who fought along side John Connor in the resistance against the machines! Yes, we spoke to no one other than Mariam, a.k.a actress Teri Wyble, and what we learned is there is much more to the amazing Teri Wyble than just being one of our favorite resistance soldiers!
It’s not often that we get to speak with a Terminator. However, actress Kristanna Loken (who played the T-X in “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines”) is so much more than the iconic, red leather, liquid metal coated killing machine that fans fell in love with back in 2003. Not only a movie star, not only a television star, Kristanna Loken is a successful producer and business executive, who added maybe the greatest accomplishment of all less than a year ago when she became a mother.
Yesterday we reported that an animator had made an open pitch to current Terminator rights owner Skydance Productions with a new direction for the Terminator franchise. It was called “Extermination”, a visually stunning animated trailer that explored humanity’s struggles after the John Connor led Resistance won the war against the machines. Today we had an opportunity to talk with the man behind this trailer, creator Bruce Stirling John Knox, to discuss the genesis of his vision for the Terminator franchise… and what he hoped to accomplish with it.
One of the coolest new characters ever to be introduced into the Terminator cinematic franchise has to be Police Detective O’Brien from “Terminator Genisys”. Played by two actors at two different points of time, this fascinating character witnesses a deadly liquid metal machine (from an unimaginable future) kill his partner in 1984 which forces him to grapple with that unbelievable event for over 30 years. Considered a drunken lunatic by all of his peers, it’s not until two time-travelers arrive in 2017 that O’Brien’s fantastic tale of horror he witnessed that fateful day was validated. So needless to say, when we got the opportunity to speak with actor Wayne Bastrup (who played the younger version of this fantastic character in the ever expanding Terminator lore), we were thrilled! Here’s how it went:
On the night of May 12th, 1984 near the Griffith Observatory in Griffith Park, Los Angeles, three delinquent punks fooling around with a public telescope are approached by a naked, imposing male who demands clothes.. and may not be quite what he seems.
We all know this historic moment in cinema. And it’s not every day when you can have a sit-down with an actor from this iconic Terminator scene, so when SkynetsArmy.com had an opportunity recently to talk to actor, producer, writer and director John Edward Lee… who played the punk leader in “TERMINATOR GENISYS”… we couldn’t have been more thrilled!
